Twitter will let iPhone owners tweet with just your voice. Here's how to do it

• by Katie Conner

Sometimes saying what you want to say is easier than typing it out -- and now you can. This week, Twitter added a new feature for iPhone ($699 at Apple) users that lets you tweet a voice recording that you capture through the app. The feature is limited for now (Twitter says it's testing it out), but the company is hopeful that it can release the new voice tweet tool "in the coming weeks" for all iOS devices.

The recorded tweets will appear as usual in your followers' timeline, alongside text tweets. Each audio tweet can last up to 140 seconds (or two minutes, 20 seconds). If you exceed the time limit, the app will create a new recording, stringing together a thread of voice tweets.
